    Used FAGE 2% plain Greek yogurt with great results. 30 min for my oven, crunchy/crispy outside and very tender inside. Fun and quick.

  2. what would i do to get the outside of the bagel to not be crispy; to be more like lenders soft bagels?

    I mean…they aren’t bagels. Dough ingredients aside, they need to be boiled in order to get the cheesy outside. I think it’s pretty whack to omit the defining characteristic of bagels and still call them that. I don’t know why, but I expected more from you.

    Had an interesting experience just now with this recipe. My partner didn’t know that t means teaspoon. And because tsp was used elsewhere in the ingredients, they used tablespoons instead of teaspoons for the baking powder and salt. Maybe change the t’s to tbs? If it’s not too much trouble. Still giving 5 stars because I’ve made this a million times in a bunch of shapes and iterations and it’s fantastic!

    just made this because I love bagels and don’t have time to make homemade bagels
    I added jalapenos and cheddar cheese into the dough and while I knew I had to add more flour and knead more it was so worth it.
    I also added jalapenos and cheese on top after I did the egg wash. mine did have to cook for the full 35mins but they came out crispy and golden brown. tastes just like a bagel no complaints here. thanks for the recipe will definitely try different varieties and see how they taste
